They offered good, clean rooms and cozy, though I found the rooms small. There was little room to put the luggages in and we had big ones plus our hand carries. Also, one of the cabinets in our room smelled of the clothes of the people who previously stayed there. Bathroom was ok, space is okay and clean.
Dining hall up on its topmost floor is nice and quaint - there is a view of the Blue Mosque from there! Food is so-so, I particularly did not enjoy it and the quantities were too little.
Overall, I would go back to this hotel ONLY if on a budget but not if I have money to spare. I would rather stay in Kent hotel where the location is better. Going out from this hotel into the streets did not make me feel safe. Though there IS a good money changer down the road and this hotel is very near the Grand Bazaar (5 minutes walking distance). However, to get to this hotel you will be dropped off by your bus (if you are taking a bus) at the main street then you will have to walk along the cobblestone street where the hotel is located carrying all your stuff - hence the inconvenient location.
